CRANFORD - Due to the impending inclement weather, Cranford Public Schools will be closed on Tuesday, February 12.
On Monday, Governor Phil Murphy declared that New Jersey will enter a state of emergency beginning tonight at midnight ahead of the winter storm, which is expected to start tonight and continue throughout the day tomorrow. Executive Order No. 55 declares a state of emergency across all 21 counties in New Jersey, allowing resources to be deployed throughout the state during the duration of the storm.
“As we prepare for a winter storm in New Jersey, we are urging New Jersey residents to stay off the roads to avoid dangerous driving conditions,” said Governor Murphy. “We will continue to actively monitor the storm and are prepared to deploy any resources to help with any storm-related issues.”
New Jersey is expected to experience several inches of snow and some icing throughout the northern and central part of New Jersey. There may be a potential wintry mix of snow and sleet that may transition to rain in southern parts of the state.
At Monday night's Township Committee Workshop Meeting, it was decided to cancel Tuesday's night's Official Meeting. The Commissioners stressed the dangers of residents and themselves having to travel on potentially icey roads. Items on the agenda will be moved to the Tuesday, February 19 Township Committee Combined Workshop and Official Meeting agenda.
